Memorial Hospital in Jasper to Keep Visitation Restrictions In Place For Now, Others Doing the Same


JASPER -- Memorial Hospital in Jasper has announced plans to keep visitation restrictions in place for now, according to a statement released Thursday morning by hospital officials.

"While Indiana has recently entered Stage 5 in the “Back on Track” plan, COVID19 infection and hospitalization rates in several local counties are currently at their highest point since the pandemic began," says a spokesperson for the Community Patient Safety Coalition, which includes Jasper's Memorial Hospital and other facilities in the region.

 "Because of this, member hospitals of the Community Patient Safety Coalition will continue current visitor restrictions. Keeping current visitor restrictions in place allows hospitals to protect all patients seeking healthcare, as well as reducing risk to healthcare workers who need to remain healthy and safe to provide patient care. While many of our member hospitals are experiencing high patient censuses right now, adequate PPE is available, and many safety processes and protocols are in place to help keep patients safe while accessing healthcare for any concern."

 Hospitals are also working closely with local and state health officials to manage testing capabilities and other resources. Each hospital has their visitation policies posted on their respective websites.  CLICK HERE TO SEE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL'S POLICY.
